### Question regarding webcam

If we need an extra camera to record our work space, how can the second device connect to our computer in lockdown browser?

Technically, you only need to show your workspace. My TA said showing your face is not necessary. However, to answer your question, if you're using a second device (assuming you don't have a webcam), you're opening Zoom using that second device, which is pointed to your workspace, and the device you're using to take the test is pointing at you.

As far as I know, the webcam on the device you're taking the test at will be pointing at your face, and I think Respondus records you while you're taking the exam (I'm not sure though, so double check about that). Then when we open Respondus, there will be a Zoom link to our discussion section; so the second webcam will be connected to Zoom and will be used to record our workspace. I hope that helps :)

My TA said we can try using our phones during next week's discussion section.

According to the email Professor Lavelle sent, we can use another device such as an ipad to show our workplace on zoom if we don't have a webcam. In this case, we will need two devices, one for doing the exam and one for showing our workplace.

Based on the information I have gathered from my TA and Professor’s email, we do not necessarily need a webcam if we have another device that will show our workspace while taking the assessments.
